Hi Alex. Excellent class, thanks.

Have a good one.

Saturday, August 3rd 2019

Got 09. Last question is very true. Super valuable lesson. Thank you so much Alex. You have an admirable way of teaching!

Saturday, August 3rd 2019

I got 9/10, you’re a good teacher who was involved in Engvid.com along time. you’re regarded as best teacher in my country that based on amount of the follower on youtube. But I’m a bit confusing about difference betwewn be known as and be regarded/seen as .Thank Alex

Saturday, August 3rd 2019

    You used Past Simple Tense in first sentence (was involved). Past Simple expresses activities that happened in the past and are not happening anymore. They are finished. Meaning of your sentence is that Alex is currently NOT involved anymore.

    In this particular case it is better to use Present Perfect Tense: “Teacher who has been involved.” because Present Perfect reflect action that started in the past and is still continuing to the present.

    Now to the question. I don’t see big difference between known vs. regarded. I feel regarded is stronger word then known. For example, Mr. Joe is known to be good physicist, but Einstein is regarded as excellent physicist.

And also thanks for remembering Santos Dumont’s participation in developing human flight procedures.
One question (again!), about the last example:
when you write “Flamethrowers were first used in World War I”, could it also be written “firstly” instead of “first”?
Thanks for the assistance.

Hi lovely class

Saturday, August 17th 2019

firstly, great pleasure for your lessons.
But I have a question.
Emma says “passive sentences are not strong for Academic essay. don’t use passive voice.use active voice.” you teachs passive verbs, advises passive sentence. which one is correct?

Saturday, August 17th 2019

Truly, this is a great lesson to learn how to use this passive structure and has taught different sentences to be used in task 2 in the IELTS test. It is highly recommended.

Sunday, August 18th 2019

Friday, February 21st 2020

Hello my teacher,i am hapy to join your teaching sessions.

Thursday, February 27th 2020

Can ask you one question,what is the full meaning of assocaited with.

Thursday, February 27th 2020

    I think that is connected with cause and consequence in understanding the phonenomena or situations. Especially, when we look closely the example in the lecture: Healthy bones are caused by drinking a milk. OR Smoking is often associated with bad cough. These days, Bad cough is associated with coronavirus. I presume it is not important what is going first (cause or consequence) in normal conversation. Only if you work on the scientific research.

    Friday, April 3rd 2020

100% excelent, very interested in this english courses
